Hi ladies!! Well I finally have a chance to get online! I had my daughter on tuesday april 4. She is the most perfect gorgeous little girl, and i cant believe how much i love her already.
Well we went in to be induced at 5am,started pitocin at 6am. The doc came in at 7:30 to break my water. Everything was going great and my ctx were on a great 1-2 minutes apart by 10am. Well everything was going good except for just one problem, she was too big for me to have naturally. My doctor had told me more than once that she just might be too big to come out on her own but i still wanted to try. By 4pm things were still going the same except she had a few dips in her heartbeat so we felt it was best to just go ahead with the c-section. Jenae was born at 5:10pm weighing 8lbs 2oz, 20 1/2 inches long. She had half a cone head from the way she was positioned. That was another reason why she couldnt come on her own. When I heard her cry i just started sobbing, She is beautiful and big and everything I never thought. I felt just an intense feeling of love when I heard her and I forgot everything they were doing to me and was just worried about her. She scored 9/9 on her apgar scores.
Being a mom is harder than I imagined but I wouldnt trade it for anything in the world. She has a HUGE appetite and my breasts were just not enough for her so I have to supplement with formula. Even now that my milk is in, she has to have a bottle afterwards. Yesterday she was drinking almost 3 oz at almost every feeding, which I wonder if thats too much? She loves to be held and snuggled and she is just so facsinated with her daddy. She looked just like me when she was born but now she is starting to look like DH too. Especially when she sleeps or makes silly little faces.
Well just thought i'd let everyone know that "her majesty" is here, gotta go, she beckons!!LOL!!!
